Quote:

This just in… A federal court in Argentina has decriminalized
the personal consumption of drugs in that country. According
to the court’s ruling, punishing drug users only “creates an
avalanche of cases targeting consumers without climbing up in
the ladder of [drug] trafficking.”

Last month at a UN meeting in Vienna, Argentina’s Minister of
Justice, Aníbal Fernández, said that the policy of punishing
drug consumers was a “total failure.”




Impressive!

  • Original Source: Despenalizan el consumo de drogas en Argentina

    Translation (via Google Translate):

    A court in Buenos Aires cancels thousands of cases of defendants in proceedings for possessing marijuana
    They believe that consumers are the factor of a chain that ends in drug trafficker


    The Financial online

    Buenos Aires, April 23 .- A federal court in Buenos Aires decriminalize individual consumption of drugs in the capital argentina, which would be cancelled in the process thousands of cases of persons accused of possessing small amounts of marijuana, according to the judgement published Today the press in Buenos Aires.

    The ruling states that the Board of 1 Federal Chamber of appeals declared unconstitutional sections of the law that punishes drug users, enacted in 1989.

    The rule punishes consumers questioned on the grounds that are the backbone of a chain that ends in drug trafficker.

    But the court ruled that such a presumption only generated "an avalanche of records for consumers without achieving move up the chain of trafficking" in drugs.

    The ruling was applied to the case of two youths arrested by police for possession of marijuana cigarettes and pills of ecstasy when attending a celebration of electronic music in Buenos Aires in May 2007.

    Although the issue should be settled in the Supreme Court, the court's ruling in Buenos Aires is in line with government policy Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in favour of reforming the laws to decriminalize drug use.

    During the 51 Special Session of the Economic and Social Council of the UN, held last month in Vienna, the Argentine Minister of Justice and Security, Anibal Fernandez, raised the "complete failure" of the policy of punishing drug users.

    In this way, and for the first time in 30 years, Argentina abandoned its commitment to the U.S. position of pursuing both the drug trafficker and the consumer. (With information from Reuters / MVC)

It's funny how when you're talking about testing the first nuclear weapon, which some scientists thought could possibly set off a chain reaction that would burn off our entire atmosphere and leave a lifeless barren rock floating in space, the risk is justified. But if a few extra people might get stoned it's just too dangerous to try.

I'm sure the ole' USA is not happy about this. it's good to see south american countries doing their own thing instead of bending over backwards for western powers to fuck them in the ass.
